About this title

Synopsis:

The first comprehensive resource on CRP--a powerful new way to assess heart attack risk

Half of all heart attacks and strokes occur in people with normal cholesterol levels--a phenomenon that has long baffled doctors.

C-Reactive Protein, or CRP, is a newly discovered measure of inflammation in the body that some researchers believe is twice as important as cholesterol in predicting one's risk of heart disease. C-Reactive Protein is the first comprehensive consumer book on the subject.

CRP is quickly becoming a hot topic in the media, and public awareness about CRP is growing. The American Heart Association and the Centers for Disease Control now recommend that some 40 million Americans have their CPR levels tested as part of their regular physical. Written by an awardwinning cardiologist, this book explains what CRP means to one's health and shows readers step-by-step how to keep CRP under control. Readers will find:

  • Important advice on what to do if CRP levels are high
  • Lifesaving information on nutrition, supplements, and medications
  • Instructions for getting CRP levels tested and more

From the Back Cover:

Everything you need to know about CRP--­­a powerful new indicator for heart-disease risk

Why do half of all heart attacks and strokes occur in people with normal cholesterol levels? Even if you've lowered your cholesterol to well within a safe range, you may still be at high risk for cardiovascular disease if your C-reactive protein levels--or CRP--are high. This newly discovered measure of inflammation in the body is being hailed as twice as important as cholesterol in predicting your risk of heart disease. Lipid testing is not enough--learn how to lower your CRP levels with the help of this groundbreaking guide.

The American Heart Association and the Centers for Disease Control now recommend that some 40 million Americans have their CRP levels tested as part of their regular physical. Yet so many of us are unsure just exactly what CRP is. This is the first comprehensive consumer book to fully explain CRP. It demystifies this "new cholesterol" and lays out a clear, step-by-step program to help you take full control of your cardiovascular health.

Written by an expert in cardiology, C-reactive Protein reveals:

  • How CRP affects artery disease
  • How to tell if you're at risk for high levels of CRP
  • How to have your CRP levels tested through a basic blood test
  • How to keep your CRP levels under control through proper nutrition, supplements, exercise, and, when necessary, medication
  • Vital advice on what to do if your CRP levels are high
  • And much more
